Initiated by funds collected from the proceeds of a photography exhibition by one of the founders of Jenggala Keramik - the late and sorely-missed Brent Hesselyn, the Jenggala Artist Scholarship Program has supported the work of five promising artists from the Indonesian Institute of Art (ISI) in Denpasar.
The winners of the scholarship have again been brought together in a shared exhibition "Scenes of Nature" to run from July 1 through August 25, 2005, at Jenggala Keramik.
Inspired by the endless beauty of nature, the talented award recipients have responded to the challenges nature has provided them in creating their artwork through color, shape and a shared philosophy that connect the whole element together.
Vinsensius Dedy Reru symbolizes the magnificent aspects of flowers expressed within the space dimensions of a garden framed on canvas.
Ida Bagus Tilem and Wayan Linggih each try to enter the dimension of a forest as it represents nature's life. Forests, for them, represent tranquility, comfort and loneliness where in the depth of the forest, they find the aesthetic values so perfectly illustrated in their artwork.
I Komang Suarsana pictures the elements of space as a part of nature. Through his paintings, he expresses his admiration for land, forest, sea and mountain. Yet, on another level, he also describes the exploitation of nature.
I Wayan Edhi Sutarna paints butterflies on his canvases, picturing them capable of communicating on at least as many ways as human beings.
This exciting exhibition of young and dynamic local artists is open daily from July 1 through August 25, 2005 at Jenggala Keramik in Jimbaran.
